Surprised Carrick is supposedly injured. Mr reliable on the injury front. Is age catching up with him or is it just bad luck? I suppose playing in 2 positions against Palace for 90 minuted didn't help.
Louis van Gaal has made midfielder Michael Carrick his new vice-captain
"I have three captains," said Van Gaal. "You have a sequence: Wayne Rooney is one, Carrick is two, Fletcher three". "He brings a lot of experience but also a lot of composure," "He can transfer my philosophy on to the pitch." "Now we don't have Daley Blind, when I choose Carrick in defence, I miss him in midfield." __________________________________________________________________________________________
Well deserved Carrick is the unsung hero behind the six wins in a row.
Shame but surely Herrera will get some game time now.
And if it means the ball will move quicker than what we're used to see, not much of a problem. It's just that we don't have a decent enough cover for Blind if, God forbid, he do something that shall not be named!
His contract is running out at the end of the season.... do you think his contract should be renewed, and do you think it will be? I personally think giving him another year would be a good idea, but if he leaves after the season then fair enough. He's not quite as good as he was 2-3 years ago and we still need to revamp our midfield.
